Spike Bar

A top golf course bar where you'll find a great post-round bite

Time Out Says

Having recently been bumped upstairs in Emirates Golf Club, to cater for the arrival of jones the grocer, a revamped Spike Bar shines. We’ve raved about the bar previously – with its 16 TV screens and cosy vibe – and with that in mind, your food is almost certain to arrive with a side order of sport, accompanied by a cracking view of the ninth and 18th holes.

Along with a new home came a revamped menu, part of which is by famed Chef Hari Ghotra. The South Indian selection features potato croquettes (bondas), korma, dhal, chickpea curry and more.

We opt for a platter with paneer pakora, bondas, satay and, incongruously, curry and fries. Still, that’s all the food groups covered so we crack on eagerly. It’s largely very tasty, even if the satayed meat is on the tough side. The bondas, though, are incredibly moreish.

We also tuck into the Captain’s Salad – a brilliant veggie option bursting with flavour thanks to a combination of cauliflower, aubergine, cucumber, garlic and parsley with a yoghurt, tahini and sumac dressing. Other staple options include classic pub grub such as wings, fish and chips, crab tacos burgers, pizzas and nachos.

All in all, Spike’s a top spot to refuel after a round, or for a casual bite if you’re in the area.

The bottom line
Good grub with great golfing views.
